Angola - Country Commercial Guide
Agricultural Products
Last published date:


With a population of nearly 36 million people, including a segment of high-income consumers looking for quality imported products, Angola presents an array of export opportunities for U.S. food and agricultural products. Angola is a significant importer of food and agricultural goods, making foreign purchases totaling more than $2.75 billion from more than 60 countries in 2022. The country imports over half of its food, and Post sees the best U.S. export opportunities in the consumer-oriented products category, which accounted for more than 99 percent of the United States’ $237 million in agricultural exports to Angola in 2022. The United States was the third largest supplier of food and agricultural products last year, trailing only the EU and Brazil. Those three countries supplied more than half of Angola’s 2022 imports of food and agricultural products.

Angola was the largest U.S. poultry market in Africa, and the sixth largest globally last year, importing more than $232 million of American poultry and poultry products. Chicken meat is the most widely consumed and most affordable protein available in country. While Angola produces an estimated 42,000 tons of chicken meat per year, that only accounts for 13 percent of total market demand of approximately 312,000 tons annually. Thus, Angola remains a strong market opportunity for U.S. poultry, especially frozen chicken leg quarters. FAS Post’s Annual Poultry and Products Report provides additional information on the Angolan market.

Other major U.S. agricultural exports to Angola last year included dry beans, beef livers, turkey, pork, wine, and food preparations. From all sources, the largest import categories were palm oil ($219 million), poultry meat and edible offal ($201 million), rice ($186 million), wheat ($172 million), wheat flour ($63 million), soybean oil ($58 million), sausages ($48 million), and sugar ($46 million).
